Tropical Storm Eta – Update #7 – 11/10/2020

University of Florida officials are continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Eta. Here’s what we know today:

Heavy rainfall from Eta will continue across South Florida today and tonight. Additional flash and urban flooding, especially across previously inundated areas, will be possible in South Florida. Little motion is expected today.

Eta could approach the northeastern or north-central U.S. Gulf Coast later this week as a tropical storm and possibly bring impacts from rain, wind and storm surge. The current National Hurricane Center forecast brings the center near the Florida Panhandle on Sunday morning.

UF units with operations in Florida’s Panhandle and Big Bend should monitor forecasts for possible impacts late this week and be ready to follow guidance from local officials.

No tropical storm warnings or watches are currently in place for Alachua County, and no operation changes are anticipated for the UF campus in Gainesville. We will continue to monitor and update the UF community on expected impacts or schedule changes as information becomes available.
